The Byrne Family of 5

WOW!!! What a week we had in Beaufort with the Byrne Family of Five!!

After leaving the Everglades, we made one quick stop in Titusville (near Cape Canaveral), played a round of golf and rested up for the triplets - so we thought.

We arrived in Beaufort on Friday, April 16, just in time for the March of Dimes 5K on Saturday. Gary and I thought it would be a lot of fun to join Bethany, David, Olivia and George (YEAH - Samuel is home but this walk would have been a little much for him) on this fine Saturday morning to support a good cause. Little did we know we were walking with ‘royalty’. The morning started with Bethany taking the award for ‘top individual money raiser’. AND - Everyone in Beaufort knows the Byrne family - so it took us a little time to get going, as everyone had to come up and talk. While we are experienced at these walks - we have never pushed a TRIPLE stroller in one before. That in itself is a novelty - then you put these cute little ones in it - and you have quite a show stopper!

The rest of the week we just had a BLAST!! We played, danced, went to the park, played - in general, we enjoyed Olivia, George and Samuel - and Bethany and David!

The pictures can tell the story.

Finally figured out how to hold Samuel without knocking his trache hose off the connection (which we did 3 times in the first ten minutes:-(().

Olivia finally decided that Gary was not an ogre (this took the whole week!).

Hmmmmm, I guess the big guys is okay

I like this slide thingey

What a great week - Thanks to the Byrne Family of 5 for sharing with us:-)) As always - it was very hard to leave, but all good things must come to an end. We promised to make this an annual event and to return Spring of 2011 - if not before.

Next stop cousins Dodge and Jeanie in Atlanta.
